This will hopefully help leverage more development for sure. It'll be interesting to see if they split $1 million between each of the 3 projects or just use it as needed. I want to see the ACF redevelopment happen the most as that'll likely be the largest project but I'd imagine that the Fairfield redevelopment will happen first as that is already partially started. Plus, with Cabell Huntington as a private partner in that, I'm sure that'll help it happen a little quicker.

Agreed, as much as I would like to see the West End grow, I think the Fairfield and Highlawn projects are more important to the city. I can't wait to see what happens over the next few years.

Don't forget about the gigabit internet proposal - that'll definitely take some capital to get it off the ground (or, in the ground, rather).

The Gigabit proposal was one aspect of the Fairfield redevelopment though, correct? I thought they were trying to tie together Marshall, the new development and the hospital with a fiber optic loop.

I always viewed it as a separate aspect of the overall plan as it would connect CHH, Fairfield, Marshall, the brownfields properties, St. Mary's, and downtown.

Ah ok. I thought the planned loop for the fiber optic line was a little smaller.

FYI, the HIP plan on the City's website was updated not long ago to reflect progress made and planned next steps. I hadn't noticed until I was flipping through it today and realized the conceptual plan rendering of the brownfields site from Stromberg & Garrigan's study (finished a couple months ago) was included in it. Give it a read if you get a chance.
